Accoring to her "everybody goes to De Coal Pot but you should go to SoGo's first". (De Coal Pot is right across the street from... More

We always stop here. Lovely owner and tasty veggie platter which is what I always get. Plantains, breadfruit, fungi, Caribbean sweet potato...whatever's handy. Good sized drinks too!

Unpretentious place with reasonable prices, friendly service, and homemade local dishes. Not fancy, but filling and authentic.

Being tired from the beach, I ordered take-out chicken and fries for them to eat and then relax. The food disappeared immediately. I've also eaten Sogo's chicken and fries. It has a lot of flavor and is freshly cooked just before pick up.
